BANGKOK, Jan 12 (Reuters) - Thailand's PTT Exploration and Production Pcl is considering cutting its $3.4 billion investment budget for this year due to declining oil prices, its chief executive said on Tuesday.
Somporn Vongvuthipornchai told reporters the company has already delayed investment in three foreign projects in Canada, Australia and Myanmar.
PTT, Thailand's top energy firm, is also keen to buy a stake in Bongkot offshore gas field from BG Group plc, Somporn added.
